Ravens come to terms with WR Torrey Smith (Doss, too)

After 48 hours of watching players either cut or sign with another team, fans can finally rejoice in an acquisition.

According to reports, the Ravens have come to terms with second-round pick, wide receiver Torrey Smith. Terms of the deal are not yet known for the former University of Maryland standout.

Smith had a monster campaign with the Terps in 2010, accumulating 67 catches for 1,055 yards and a dozen touchdowns. He was part of an offense that helped Maryland bounce back from a dismal 2-10 season in 2009 and finish with a 9-4 record and a convincing win in the 2010 Military Bowl over East Carolina.

His breakout game came against North Carolina State in which Smith hauled in 14 catches for 224 yards and found the endzone four times. He became just the second receiver in school history to finish with more than 1,000 yards in a single season and was drafted with the 58th overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Smith will ideally be a deep threat for quarterback Joe Flacco and hopefully help stretch out the Ravens’ passing attack which averaged just 208.4 yards per game a year ago.

Update: The deal is reportedly for four years. Still no word on the dollar amount. The Ravens have also come to terms with fourth-round pick Tandon Doss. The wide receiver played his college football at Indiana University, where he was named to first team All-Big Ten in 2009 and 2010.
